On Sunday, President Donald Trump sent out a tweet that would squash any doubts that the American people will have to live with ObamaCare. Even though there was some speculation that President Trump and his administration were going to back off of this issue after the recent failure with RyanCare, that is not the case.
President Trump and his team have been working steadily to get a healthcare bill through Congress and one little bump in the road is not going to stop them. The Caucus played an intrumental role in keeping RyanCare from passing by the House Republican Majority.
President Trump’s recent tweets only solidify the confidence his voters have in him regarding the party and their unified plan to repeal and replace President Obama’s unpopular healthcare act, aka the Affordable Care Act.
The tweets were backed up by a report in the Wall Street Journal that, in the hours following the tweets, President Trump met with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), along with his Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, at his Trump National Golf Club in northern Virginia. Senator Paul had been among the fiercest critics of Speaker Ryan’s bill as it made its way through the lower chamber. “They’re discussing a variety of topics, including health care,” White House deputy press secretary Stephanie Grisham told the Journal. While some in the GOP have expressed their desire to move on to other legislative priorities, the president’s latest comments on social media stand counter to mainstream media suggestions that health care reform, and by extension Trump’s ability to govern, is dead in the aftermath of Ryancare’s failure.
